    I'm headed to the People's Republik of Konnektikut. Turkey dinner and watching football with the family, then my sister is marrying my best friend the Saturday after the holiday. It should be quite the joyous occasion.

    This will be the last time the whole family is together before I go to war. I will try to make the most of it, just in case I don't come back.

    We're going to a hang out with some friends in the Eastern part of the state. There will be about 20 people who are not getting to with their families for various reasons (finances, schedules, etc.) so it's a "misfit" Thanksgiving. I'll be deep frying a couple turkeys because no one that is coming has ever had one.

    Once you do, you'll never go back.

    Excellent, Todd! I don't mean the fried turkey though. I mean a place that 20 folks can congragate and enjoy the day.

    Of course, I'll be Hunting in the morning (hand gun only this year(S&W 686-6 .357 6")). Followed by a big thanksgiving dinner at my parents house. More hunting in the evening. Followed by Thanksgiving at the father in laws house. I think I'll follow this by a long nap!

    Eating!

    Hey Mike. Odds are you'll come back. We've overall lost very few men compared to other wars. We are the best trained military in the world and can kick anyone's ass. You have the advantage of your interest in guns and tactics. Just don't be a John Wayne and take unnecessary chances and all will go good. I'm sure it will change you as a person as it did my nephew who was there from the beginning and has served two tours there. He was one of the first into Baghdad. He won a Bronze Star but will not say how or why- not even to his wife. It changed him in a good way. He is more mature as a man and a better husband and father.

    Yea Mr. P, We have had a dramatic drop in the rabbit population because of coyotes. They have'nt issued a price on them yet. We just shoot them for fun and rifle tests to see how the bullets expand. It would be worth the trip to bring a few heads to that county. I had thought about getting a predator call and tring my luck after I fill my freezer with deer. We could blame Texas for them. They should have killed more of them.

    Turkey Day is Family day for us ...

    Having family & friends over for the following ...

    A nice Turkey dinner ...

    Football on the tube ...

    Holiday beverages & cigars...

    The guys slip off down to the river & throw in a line or two ...

    But probably not in any particular order ...:smt003

    I'd be there now if I could remember the name of the county. I heard about this on a outdoors radio show about 4:30am a few weeks ago. I wasn't quite awake yet.

    I will be hiding in my bed for as long as possible. I very much dislike Thanksgiving. It's just me and the parental units, as it is every night, but for some reason it has to be high stress. It has already begun, mom brought the turkey out to defrost a few hours too late. God help me.

    We usually go out of town since we have no family here, but that all changed Friday night when my wife was hit by a drunk driver. We lost her car and I nearly lost my wife, then MY car broke down on the way home from the hospital at 4 in the morning and about 39 degrees and me and my son without jackets, and my wife in pain. Thank God for good friends who will come get you at 4:30 am. The wife is going to be ok but is very banged up and will be couch ridden for the next week so we will just have Thanksgiving here and God help us I will be cooking turky and dressing for the first time.

    Sorry to hear that Max. I'm glad she's on her way to recovery.

    I'll be in town. I'll do my usual dinner at Black Eyed Pea.
